Controller Performance Assessment for Industrial Control Loops

Your plant has hundreds of control loops ó all of them critical to your plantís performance and all of them requiring on-going maintenance. The Control Arts Control Monitor software package for monitoring controller performance assessment gives you the ability to effectively monitor the performance of all the DCS control loops in your plant, diagnose any loop problems, and easily re-tune any controller.

Custom analysis techniques developed by Control Arts provide the best estimate of controller performance. Unlike other packages that use the academic minimum-variance controller standard, Control Artsí algorithms account for the real-world aspects of PID and model-based controllers. They can also account for the different objectives of level controllers (more...).

Scheduled reports of recent controller performance mean that any degredations in performance are immediately recognized. The reports can be generated on a daily or weekly basis, automatically obtaining data from the plant historian (DataParc, PI, PHD, OPC, or XLS) and delivered straight to a printer or e-mail inbox, or stored back in the historian (more...).
Static reports are sufficient for an overview, but in-depth investigation and problem resolution require an interactive tool to zoom in on specific problems and explore various solutions. The Control Arts ControlMonitor interactive portion contains a wide variety of graphical and numerical tests that help diagnose and solve most controller performance problems (more...).
